– Jeremy received his bachelor’s degree in behavioral science and health from the University of Utah. He then studied prosthetics at the University of Connecticut, graduating in 2003. He completed his prosthetics residency in Las Vegas in 2004, where he continued to work in private practice until 2012. Jeremy was then offered an opportunity to work for the military in San Diego, California, working with active duty servicemen/women who had suffered amputation. There he was able to learn and practice high-tech prosthetics, including running prosthetics, sports prostheses, microprocessor-controlled prosthetics, and complex cases such as multiple limb amputation and heterotopic ossification (HO). Working with wounded warriors inspired Jeremy to push himself further in his own limitations. He enjoys surfing, wake boarking, kayaking, hiking, and riding his Harley. He’s completed several 5K’s and hiked 12 miles into the Grand Canyon in 2015. He is a proud husband and father of 3 children and loves to spend time with his family outdoors. Jeremy’s greatest training in prosthetics came from being a tri-lateral amputee himself. He’s had the opportunity to try, on himself, almost every type of prosthesis available in both upper and lower limb prosthetics. This helps him design and fit the prosthetics he provides for the patients he works with. Jeremy returned to Las Vegas to work with his close friends at NOP in 2014 and is very excited to be a part of this amazing team.
